Online gaming agents and players in Tobago are happy with the government’s decision to reopen the industry.
Last Saturday, Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh gave the green light for the gaming machines of the National Lotteries Control Board (NLCB) to resume operations. Operations were suspended since May to curb the movement of the public as covid19 cases hit almost 600 per day.
When Newsday visited a few booths on Monday, there weren’t any long lines.
Punter Harrison Thomas told Newsday the suspension of the games did not affect his pocket, but he remains hopeful of hitting the jackpot.
“Save? No, all it did was curb my habit. I really hope after that closure I would win the Lotto jackpot.”
